3.54/5 rDev -2.5%
Appearance: Poured from a 720 ml. bottle into a Duvel Belgian Tulip glass. Dark amber in color with a ½ off white head. Spotty lacing that disappears quickly.
Smell: Make no mistake; the ginger aroma is prominent and distinct. An aggressive swirl of the glass brings out even more of the ginger aroma, followed by a hint of sweet candy-like booziness. Not the same ginger ale smell from a soda, as this was sweeter and spicier with a citrus undertone.
Taste: Exactly as I thought it was be. Ginger, ginger, ginger all the way through with the same hint of sweet booziness at the finish. I catch a glimpse of nutmeg and all-spice with each sip. Dessert-like sweetness is prominent.
Mouthfeel: Sweet and slick, with a mildly bitter and warming finish. There is no doubt this beer dabbles in the 8% ABV range.
Overall: You have to love ginger to truly appreciate this beer. I happen to be a big fan of ginger, which is why I enjoyed this beer so much. It gets better as it warmed. If you like ginger then give it a try. This is my first beer from Kiuchi Brewery. I’m looking forward to trying more of them. Enjoy…
